Free Webinar and Market Spotlight Outline Essential Technologies Needed to Meet Accountable Care Objectives

ST. LOUIS January 06, 2014 — Many health care organizations believe that electronic medical records (EMRs) are the only technology needed to meet the objectives of accountable care. It’s clear that while the EMR provides important information for patient care, additional technologies are required for population health management.

The Spotlight highlights the emergence and importance of population health management and the workflows and tools needed to accomplish the goals of the Triple Aim Plus One:  better health outcomes, lower costs and improved patient plus physician satisfaction.

“Population health management applications are an early stage market with ever-changing requirements,” said Cynthia Burghard, IDC Health Insights Research Director. “As health care organizations continue to evolve their population health management strategies, they will need access to rich, integrated claims and clinical data, supported by complete organizational transformation with a focus on efforts and outcomes rather than the volume of services delivered.”
